Former Tulsa Police officer, Luke Sherman, also waged a strong campaign, but couldn't convince voters to give him a chance.

During a speech, Sherman got emotional about his campaign, saying "whether we won or lost, Tulsa County is a better place."

“My mission has always been the same, I said it to Vic, I'll still jump a fence for you. Said Sherman during a speech Tuesday "If Vic pops a flair into the sky and says I need you, I'm coming. And Vic would do the same for me. So I wish him well."

Regalado was sworn in as Tulsa County Sheriff in April. He became the first newly elected sheriff in Tulsa County since 1988.

Stanley Glanz held the position until his resignation in 2015. Regalado will face Democrat Rex Berry in the November 8th general election.
